Mission Awareness

Purpose of Mission Awareness Day

The purpose of Mission Awareness Day is to promote and stimulate greater understanding and interest in mission and service both locally and globally.

Mission Awareness Day at Messiah

During Mission Awareness Day, missions representatives from around the world come to Messiah for a day dedicated to raising awareness of our global community. As a result, students have the opportunity to attend mission focused chapels, luncheons and dinners with various speakers and representatives, booth time by the mission organizations, as well as have one-on-one interaction with other students and representatives who share a passion for global change.
